This was an event that we went to this last Saturday. It was the J.L. Fisher BBQ. J.L. Fisher is a dolly company that supplies the film industry with dollys. There are two main dolly companies, J.L. Fisher and Leonard/Chapman. So we got to tour the factory and test out all of their equipment. It was a lot of fun! We have a Fisher dolly at school so we have some experience with them anyway. They had free breakfast and lunch which was awesome.
This was a Fisher dolly and film camera setup on a circular track and we got to push eachother around on it and use the camera.
We went on a tour of the factory, which was hosted by Jimmy Fisher, J.L. Fisher's son. He is in charge of the business now and knows everything about how to make the dolly. They make 95% of the dolly at there headquarters, they showed us some of the stages of development for it. It was a great experience.
